Goodbye February, hello March! We had a very cold and snowy February where I am, the perfect time to get some reading in. This month I have kind of been in a print-book reading slump, but audio books kept me entertained.
While I’m slowly making my way through a few print books, surprisingly all of the books I finished in February were audio books. I love that even when I’m having a busy month and can’t necessarily sit down to read (or I’m in a bit of a slump), I can still listen.
- Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years by Julie Andrews with Emma Walton Hamilton. 4/5 Stairs. I listened to this one, as it’s narrated by Ms. Andrews herself. It’s an enjoyable read, especially for fans of film. The book itself has beautiful pictures from her private collection. A fun memoir to read and a beautiful book to add to your collection. See my full review on Instagram.
- The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell. 4.5/5 Stairs. Part domestic noir, part family saga. A great thriller. You can find my mini-review here.
- One of Us is Next by Karen M. McManus. 3.5/5 Stairs. Sequel to One of Us is Lying. For me, this one was a little slower paced than the first book. I was able to figure out whodunit, but the twists and turns were still enjoyable with a little surprise at the end.
- Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. 5/5 Stairs. By far, this was my favorite read of February. This book was not at all what I was expecting, and I loved it. Really enjoyed Eleanor’s growth throughout the novel and the slow unveiling of her story. A satisfying read. You can see my very spoiler-free review at Goodreads.
